    Re: Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution

    I'm loving this show and hope it does wake people up. But, I hope more than that, they will start assuming some responsibility for them and their families.
    When I was growing up, we didn't have so many jumbo kids because we ate better, there weren't that many processed foods and we played outside most of the time.
    I live in a state that is extremely health conscious, yet I see super sized kids all the time. And, most of them don't come from poor families who can't afford any better.

    And candy instead of stars???? Wow... things are really going down hill fast...my kids aren't all that old!
    My kids are playing in a different league now and DD and DS's snacks are MUCH better -- cut up oranges or grapes and then granola bars afterwards so I'm really happy about that. However, I DO have to add that I saw a diff. coach walking out with KRISPY KREME donut boxes to give his team after a game!!! It made me so sick -- an extremely obese coach walking out with those donuts to give to his girls (some of whom were overweight themselves.)

    Now, if only I could change the candy rewards for doing well in school. I'm of the mind that saying "great job" or giving them a sticker should be good enough. I asked DD to try harder at something recently and she said "what will you give me?" I replied, "I'll tell you how proud I am" and it took her a moment before she said okay. It KILLS me that she might expect something more than just that. Rrr! I could about this all day but I won't.

    Norealityhere, we need to get the kids to do pushups like your little kitty.

    at my kids (old) school the 4th grade teacher would give the kids "brain food" as they sat down for a test. It was usually skittles, jolly ranchers or licorice.

    This show has been a surprising ratings winner in its time slot. I don't think ABC cared about it at all, else why show it on Friday but it obviously has hit a spot with viewers.

    I love this show.... a revolution is needed and kudos to Jamie for the jumpstart. There are more organic farms & restaurants popping up all over the place. I've been eating only raw foods - fruit, veggies and nuts - uncooked since Jan 4. I'm feeling fantastic and down 20 pounds. No more processed junk!!!! Hope more people get on Jamie's bandwagon.

    cantstopwatchin, My daughter's school has actually banned all candy from school. If the kids bring it, it will be taken away. For special occassions (Halloween, b-days, etc) if someone bring candy for the class, they can't eat it at school, it has to go home.
    At her soccer games, it's water & oranges for half time & then the kids usually get a goodie bag after the game. That would usually have a granola bar, cheese sticks, yogurt, juice, gatorade, pretzels, or the small cookie bags. If they did get candy (we had a game on Halloween this year) it was usually just 1 or 2 of the bite sized ones, not like a whole bag.

    Where I live they are running two straight hours of this tonight, a rerun and a new episode, so newbies can catch up some.
